The participants will start by choosing and defining what fashion means to them. They also start looking and thinking about fashion all around and what and who interests and inspires them as a designer or a fashion icon. They would then learn to deconstruct and analyze the persona and contextualize it. One would start learning to communicate one's work; be it as storyboards, writings, drawings or illustrations and would be introduced to these skills and how to use them to communicate and represent initial ideas. One also learns to research and review ideas and also critique and discuss with peers. With all this feedback and reflection, one develops the designs further.
The participants take a look at how a garment is stitched today. They reverse engineer a chosen existing garment and learn how it is put together by taking it apart. They also attempt to imagine the same garment differently. One works on reconstruction using various elements and techniques that they would have been exposed to till then. By this time, one could also start using mannequins to test the designs.
The design process is not complete till one have learnt to share it, to reflect on one's feedback and learn from it. So lastly, the participants will present their work, learn to receive and give feedback, reflect upon these and evolve designs as well as oneself as a designer. On a practical note, one learns to maintain a log, keep a compilation of thoughts and ideas in a journal and documenting the work as well.
